Journal Article
Raksasat, R., Lim, J. W., Kiatkittipong, W., Kiatkittipong, K., Ho, Y. C., Lam, M. K., …Cheng, C. K. (2020). A review of organic waste enrichment for inducing palatability of black soldier fly larvae: Wastes to valuable resources. Environmental pollution, 267, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envpol.2020.115488

The increase of annual organic wastes generated worldwide has become a major problem for many countries since the mismanagement could bring about negative effects on the environment besides, being costly for an innocuous disposal. Recently, insect la... Read More about A review of organic waste enrichment for inducing palatability of black soldier fly larvae: Wastes to valuable resources.

Methods for the Treatment of Cattle Manure—A Review (2019)
Journal Article
Font-Palma, C. (2019). Methods for the Treatment of Cattle Manure—A Review. C - An Open Access Journal of Carbon Research, 5(2), https://doi.org/10.3390/c5020027

Environmental concerns, caused by greenhouse gases released to the atmosphere and overrunning of nutrients and pathogens to water bodies, have led to reducing direct spread onto the land of cattle manure. In addition, this practice can be a source of... Read More about Methods for the Treatment of Cattle Manure—A Review.
